This course offers students the opportunity to explore a mixed media approach to drawing and painting. Working from studio set-ups and occasionally from a model, students are introduced to different ways of using wet and dry media and combining different materials.
The creative use of colour is covered and students build up a confidence with mark-making, handling different materials and finding unexpected, creative ways to make art. Both quick and more sustained projects will be covered and students will produce a range of work which explores colour, pattern and composition. All materials are provided each week in order that students make full use of their time in the studio. Most classes start with a short slide lecture of artists’ work. Suitable for all levels of experience. Students can take a single term or continue the course over a number of terms.
